Tucked in the heart of the Sun Valley neighborhood in Denver, Joli is a catalytic community development project. Focused on promoting interconnectivity, the ambitious affordable housing and mixed used development will provide a safe and healthy place to live, work and play and ultimately build a sense of community and trust.
Open air circulation, architectural portals, and deliberate connections to the adjacent riverfront park work in tandem to create a seamless, open experience inside and out, while offering numerous opportunities to connect to nature and promote community wellness. Food as a foundational community building activity is emphasized through a rotating food incubator, community gardens and rooftop cooking demonstration patio and outdoor kitchen. Artful activity and play elements are distributed throughout the landscape offering non-traditional ways for physical and social play for children and adults alike. Water quality and green infrastructure is highlighted as an amenity to interpret and engage with while fostering a sense of place.
Livable Cities Studio is leading the landscape architecture and urban design for the project working in collaboration with OZ Architecture, S.A. Miro, Inc and the Denver Housing Authority.
